Let’s face it: that’s what this would be: “Sony Pictures has reportedly offered Keanu Reeves the role of Spider-Man villain Kraven the Hunter in a solo film project that is currently in development. If this is true, we still don’t know if Reeves is going to accept the offer.” Come, I will conceal nothing from you: all I know about Kraven the Hunter is from Squirrel Girl. I don’t know just where this falls on the Abomination Scale, or even if it falls on it at all.
Still. John Wick with a spear. That could be cool.
Well, actually I mailed copies of Tim Powers’ DECLARE and THE STRESS OF HER REGARD to his agent, just in case Keanu Reeves was looking for new movie ideas. But when I looked at the box there was still space in it, and one of my author copies of FROZEN DREAMS was right there. No harm, right?
Mind you, this isn’t how you get a movie made from your book. I don’t even think I want a movie made from my book, because ironically I didn’t write it to be particularly cinematographic. But, worse case scenario: some minion at WME assigned to opening celebrity mail just scored three excellent books. I figure that’ll do for an act of generosity, at least.
*Or just wanted something to read, because those are really, really good books and if you haven’t read them you should.
Well. Keanu Reeves losing his chill, clones, AIs, obsession, people with guns: Replicas ain’t John Wick 3, but that’s all right. I kind of want Keanu on his game for John Wick 3; it’d be great if that trilogy didn’t crash, burn, and sink into the swamp.
